I was reading Joshua Ch. 6 and came upon this verse, "Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, 'Cursed be the man before the Lord who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates.'” Why did Joshua say that? I thought that the people of Israel took over Jericho by that time. Was not that the time to rebuild the city?
